True Christian Life is not a Playground, but a Battle Ground

Dear all,

Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.  Ephesians 6

Word: The Whole Armor of God:

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians+6%3A+10+-17&version=NASB

Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Thought:

True Christian life is not a playground, but a battle ground. To thrive in every battle against the strategies and tactics of satanic forces, we need to absolutely rely on God’s strength. Apply every piece of his armor (defense and offence). When we continue to walk with the LORD step by step and day by day, He will turn every battle into an excellent opportunity to show His power, resulting in bringing glory to His name.

Gift of Forgiveness in Christ Jesus

Dear all,

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

As we studied about God’s amazing forgiveness in Psalms 51, let us continue to remember His goodness and faithfulness in our life.

Word: Gift of Forgiveness in Christ Jesus – Romans 5: 5 – 20

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+5%3A12+-+20&version=NASB

                But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many.

Thought:

Through the cross of Christ Jesus we have salvation and new life. Moreover, we also have an excellent opportunity to be born into His Spiritual family. Certainly, this spiritual family line starts with His amazing forgiveness and results in everlasting life.

Are you confessing the same sins over and over?

Dear all,

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and we wish you a blessed New Year. As we continue to learn more about wisdom let us live obedient to His Word.

Word:

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.  1 John 1:9

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20John%201:9

Thought: Are you confessing the same sins over and over?

When we come to Christ and genuinely confess our sins to God, He forgives our sins. True confession also includes a strong and unwavering commitment to not continue to live in sin. In addition, we need to remain strong in Christ and set godly boundaries. God is able to give us the strength we need to defeat temptation and trials every single time. Totally relying on His power is more than enough to lead a victorious Christian life.

The Cleansed Life – Godly Sorrows Vs Worldly Sorrows

Dear all,

May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Peter 1: 2

Word: Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 2 Corinthians 7:10

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Corinthians+7:10

Thought: The Cleansed Life – Godly Sorrows Vs Worldly Sorrows

If the Holy Spirit was sent to give us power to live a victorious life in all the areas of our life, why do we feel so powerless, so defeated?  Do we have any unconfessed sin in our life? What kind of concerns do we have in our lives? Is it Godly or worldly? God does not fill an unclean vessel with His limitless power and His amazing love. The vessels of our lives must be cleansed by the blood of our LORD Jesus before it can be filled with the Holy Spirit of God.

Memories of God’s Miracles and Faithfulness

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

 Word: “Living with grateful Heart”

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm%2077

11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
12 I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”

Thought:

Memories of God’s miracles and faithfulness sustained Israel through their difficulties. They knew that God was capable and trustworthy. When you meet new challenges, review how good God has been to you and your family, and this will strengthen your faith.

May God bless and strengthen you all the days of your life. Ephesians 6: 12 -17

Ministry of Reconciliation

Dear all,

Send me your light and your faithful care, let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell. Psalms 43: 3

Word: Ministry of Reconciliation

18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.       2 Corinthians 5:18-21 (NIV)

 

Thought:

We are called to be ambassadors for Christ Jesus and His Kingdom.

An ambassador is an official representative of a country to another. As believers, we are Christ’s ambassadors, sent with the message of redemption in Christ Jesus to the World.

In what ways we are fulfilling our call?

Have a Victorious walk in Christ

“When Nothing Makes Sense – Remember God is in Control”

Dear all,
May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Peter 1: 2
Word:
Faith in Action
11 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Hebrews+11
John 11: 40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+11&version=NIV
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Galatians+5&version=NIV
Thought:
When nothing makes sense, and when troubles seem more than you can bear, remember that God gives strength. Our feelings should not be controlled by the events around us, but by faith in God’s ability, which will give us the essential strength. Take your eyes off your difficulties and look to Him. God’s time table is something only He has complete control over. He is Sovereign and He is in control. He can be trusted even when we can’t predict the outcome. He will give his disciples the strength and confidence in Christ Jesus during difficult times. God’s people need to live in the strength of His Spirit, confident in his ultimate victory over evil.
To sum up, we believers need to wait patiently with sincere hearts and minds as God gives us a chance to honor Him and absolutely surrender to His Sovereign will. As our faith is tested, we are pruned to grow and bear more Spiritual fruits (Galatians 5). God is never late (John 11), so let us not rush God’s plan. The only perfect timing is God’s and His alone. Honestly, His clock doesn’t function like man’s clock.

Have a Victorious walk in Christ
